"Come as you are", it is undoubtedly how we could have described this concert of August 29, 2017 in the great hall of TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht.

A very special concert indeed ! As part of the Oude Muziek Festival in Utrecht, Le Concert Spirituel (choir and orchestra) has already given a date of this program "Benevolo, a forgotten genius of baroque polyphony" the day before in front of a conquered audience. But tonight the audience is of another kind. With the support of a DJ well known to the Dutch, young people, beer in hand, sit dow in the middle of the stage.

A unique experience, for the first time Le Concert Spirituel proposes to discover the monumental baroque this way. With introduction of the DJ, Hervé Niquet's explanations and the lights perfectly integrated in the project, this new audience was able to appreciate the most beautiful polyphonics of the 16th and 17th centuries.

We forget ! For once no dress code!
